   The minimum breaking strengths of the main components of the Söll Xenon lifeline are given below

  • Intermediate bracket standard:  > 25 kN
  • Intermediate bracket overhead system:  > 12 kN
  • Cable Ø 8 mm 7x7:  36.0 kN
  • Cable Ø 8 mm 1x19:  52.7 kN
  • Standard shuttle:  > 25 kN
  • Overhead wheeled shuttle  > 12 kN
  • Energy absorber:  > 45 kN
  • End piece and tensioner  > 52 kN

For some system components, deformations may occur in the event of a fall.
These serve to absorb energy and thereby reduce the forces acting within the system.

Additional supports (for intermediate brackets, end anchors), such as posts, must be projected for each unit following a separate plan.
Their required minimum stability is governed by the results produced by the “Miller Horizontal Lifeline Calculation Software”.

We can bridge most lifeline spans using our Söll Xenon  HLL system with our overhead Catenary wire rope anchorage systems, i.e. more than 80m etc...

Miller® by Honeywell  - Fall Protection

 Miller® … Synonymous with Safety, Quality, Reliability and Innovation.

European legislation states that fall protection measures must be put in place by the employer of any person working at a height where a fall hazard exists. The regulation also requires that people involved in work at height are competent to do so or if in training, are supervised by a competent person. If it is not feasible to eliminate the hazard using a collective system, then personal protective equipment (PPE) must be selected and used. It could be for restraint, work positioning, rescue or fall arrest purposes.

This system consists of a full body harness, an intermediate attachment and an anchorage connector. The systems can only be used if a suitable anchorage point is located close to the work area.

Miller® products are designed and tested by full-time, qualified engineers and technicians at a state-of-the-art, in-house testing facility, which not only verifies that specific standards are achieved but often tests beyond the standards to assure the ultimate in safety performance. In addition, all Miller® products are third-party tested by independent sources to further certify compliance. Honeywell Industrial Safety has successfully earned and continues to retain ISO 9001 certification at its manufacturing facilities. Miller® has undergone the most stringent requirements for design and development, production and service, proof of our unwavering and ongoing commitment to consistent quality products and services.
